Lego Batman 2’s Dynamic Demo

No signal shone in the sky to announce the presence of a PC demo for Lego Batman 2 but I found it anyway, lurking over at the official website. The portion contained is the beginning of the game which means there's no chance to explore the Gotham hub, just a brick-bopping jaunt through the Man of the Year ceremony, where Bruce Wayne beats "some bald…

Lego Batman 2 Launch Trailer Has Everything

I think I may actually mean that. The latest (and probably final, given the brick-based behemoth's impending June 22 release date) Lego Batman 2 trailer might just have all of the things. You, for instance, might play games for outlandish vehicles. Well, this one has those too. Or you might enjoy kung-fu fighting - perhaps even of the "fast as lightning" variety. Lego The Flash's…

New Lego Batman 2 Trailer Tells All

It's the moment of truth. Sticks and stones and Bane can break my bones, but can words commit the most insidious crime of all by sapping the charm from Legos? Are these tiny torch-bearers of the mantra "actions speak louder than words" truly meant to sprout tiny, block-shaped vocal cords? Perhaps, I fear, we've gone too far. Maybe Lego Batman 2 should be a series…

Legollum, Legothmog, Legolas: Lego LOTR Confirmed

This is no surprise but confirmation comes that Lego Lord of the Rings will be released in the Autumnal phase of 2012. I was quite disconcerted when the Joker started talking in a video for the next Lego Batman, which looks quite superb, but the trailer for Lego of That Ring goes even further, re-enacting scenes from the film and using the dialogue right in…

Lego League – Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

All the heroes and villains are coming out to play in the cumbersomely titled Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, or at least a great deal of the heroes and villains created or legally owned by one major comic book publisher. I'd go through the trailer and try to identify as many as I can but I'm already confused as to whether there are several…

Brickbashing Batbuddies: LEGO Batman 2

LEGO Batman 2 was announced very quietly and a few months later an image appeared to semi-prove that it definitely existed. Now a press release has arrived to tell us that it's real, although without confirming that it was previously announced. Exciting stuff but what does it all mean? I choose to believe that a game starring Batman, Robin and several other DC chaps and…

The Cubed Crusader: LEGO Batman 2?

Hooray! A Batman game that won't use the word 'bitch' every five seconds, though God only knows what all the cutsey, wordless Lego-dude chuntering really means. "Oh great Satan, dark lord of my heart, let me worship you, let me consume the souls of the innocent and strangle kittens in your honour" - that's what Lego Commissioner Gordon's really saying, I bet. So, Lego Batman…

Demobulus: Lego Harry Demo Out Already

Egad, there's a demo of Lego Harry Potter: Years 5 - 7 all of a sudden. Why the surprise, you ask? Because you haven't been paying attention to Adam and me, when we've told you over and over how great the first Lego Harry game was. And as I've mentioned before, I'm saying that as someone who would rather eat his own shins than read…

Face Fear: Lego Harry Potter Yrs 5-7

With all the talk of genuinely blood-curdling experiences over here, I bring you something else in the build up to Halloween. Lego. This short trailer for Lego Harry Potter Yrs 5-7 doesn't actually show any gameplay, but it does capture one of the things I like about the Lego games; they don't buckle under the occasional self-importance of the franchises they depict.

Toy That Lives: Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7

Like John, I thoroughly enjoyed the first installment of Lego Harry Potter's schoolyard mishaps and I was pleased that Years 5-7 will be available this year on 18th November. A huge part of the early years' appeal, however, was the use of Hogwarts as a hub world and the later stories, as you could conceivably have avoided discovering, do take the action away from school…

Releasario: Lego Harry Potter 2 Out In Nov

Something I still haven't done, that I was originally planning before Christmas, is to write a WIT for Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4. I know that sounds like a strange game to review long after it came out, and perhaps not quite in the target audience for RPS, but blimey, it's a brilliant game. Certainly I'm a sucker for Traveller's Tales' Lego games, but not…

Lego Of Tradition: On Traveller’s Tales

It’s a mistake, in light of Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean, to accuse Traveller’s Tales of diminishing returns with their Lego series. I keep seeing that happening. It's wrong. If anything the problem is the stability of their consistency. I've had a think about why.

Lego Star Wars: The Clone Wars review

The latest Traveller's Tales Lego game, Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars, came out yesterday. I've played the Story Mode through to completion, and fought against replaying the entire thing in Free Play in order to have time to write this review. Is it any good? Well, I've sort of given that away. Yes, it's extremely good. Here's Wot I Think to prove why.

Bounty Stumper: Lego Star Wars III Trailer

Hoo hoo hoo, I can't wait for Lego Star Wars III (warning: hideous, annoying website). Despite the quite remarkably boring opening to the 360 demo that I didn't bother playing past. Also, hello former writer for PC Gamer who makes the Lego Star Wars games - how about a PC demo? Eh? Anyway, there's a new CGI trailer/cutscene for it out of GDC and it…

Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean Pics, Trailer

Not only are we soon getting Lego Star Wars III, but this Summer brings us Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean. As Alec observed last November, they do seem a perfect triplet of movies (with a fourth this May, the game released alongside it) for the Traveller's Tales treatment. Not much is known yet, other than the obvious (squillion characters, smash stuff, build stuff, levels represent…

Eggo Arr Aws Eeeee! Aa Oo Aaiier!

Cynical people, naff off. I adore the Lego games. With the possible exception of Lego Indiana Jones, they've been amazing creations, packed with wit and detail like little else. Lego Harry Potter should have been in our 2010 Calendar, and it was only because I didn't play it until too late that I didn't know to argue for it. So news of Lego Star Wars…

Johnny Depp Is A Stud

From now on, RPS will be exclusively dedicated to revealing hitherto unsuspected man-crushes on celebrities and tracking their every movement, Perez Hilton-style. You're okay with that, right? Here we go: "Cube-faced, pencil-armed pin-up Johnny Depp took a break from being automatically cast in any and all Tim Burton films today to stroll down the Champs-Élysées whilst wearing a fetching distressed double-denim combo..."Ahahah. Just my little…

Wizard! Lego Harry Potter Trailer

Look, right, I'm just going to say it: I don't much like Harry Potter. The books, I mean. I'm sure Harry's just lovely. But the whole thing has never done anything for me. I'm not boasting - how tiresome people are who think they're clever for not liking something popular. I'm missing out. (Although I can always re-read His Dark Materials, I suppose.) But still.…
